Pregnancy Sickness

I apologize for my absence on here lately. I’ve been fighting horrible pregnancy sickness. Thankfully though, things have gotten much better. A midwife friend recommended I take milk-thistle supplements to help with the nausea and boy was I glad she did! While they have not eliminated all nausea, they have helped greatly! I was at the point where I wasn’t able to do ANYthing. All I could do was curl up in a ball and be miserable. While I still can’t stand to cook food, I am much more active and not in endless misery.

image I recently read a great book called, “Pregnancy Sickness: Using Your Body’s Natural Defenses to Protect Your Baby-to-Be” by Margie Profet. This book explains how my food aversions are a way of protecting my unborn baby from potential toxins. I’d always seen food aversions and nausea in the first trimester as just a royal pain that had to be endured. I’m much relieved to learn that this sickness actually serves a purpose! Reading the book also helped to eliminate my guilt over not being able to eat a huge variety of foods right now. I highly, highly recommend you read this book if you are planning on getting pregnant or if you’re newly pregnant! Seriously!

  • Great article, well written


  • I’m sorry to hear you’re so sick. I was like that with my daughter, 1st pregnancy at 18. I was sick all day every day no matter what I did or didn’t do. Couldn’t eat, had to drop classes, barely left the house. About the time the Dr was going to hospitalize me it started getting better at almost 4 months. I didn’t gain ANY weight until 5 months, before that it was just getting back the lbs I’d lost from sickness.fertility
